After the tremendous success of their previous two slots called Cleopatra and Cleopatra II, IGT decided to create the third version of this slot called Cleopatra Plus.
Even though the release date remains unknown, we did manage to gather a decent amount of information concerning the latest IGT product.
Obviously, the main theme will be the famous Cleopatra, the last pharaoh of Egypt, so once again you will set on a quest to discover the long lost riches of this famous ancient ruler.
It is said that the 2016 release will be packed with action and all sorts of bonus features, which is why we believe that action junkies will be in for a treat!
International Game Technology, or IGT has been in the casino business since the mid 1950’s, and in the beginning the company supplied land based casinos all around the world. We could call IGT the pioneers of video gambling games, being the provider of the first video poker machine.
By purchasing Wagerworks in 2005, IGT made it possible for their excellent land-based slots to reach every corner of the world through online casinos. Today the company from London offers more than 100 video slots, with the Cleopatra slot being probably the most popular one.
How To Play It
When it comes to visuals and soundtrack, IGT decided to stick to the original and used much of the symbols from the Cleopatra slot, but did make an improvement concerning the graphics and the animations. Once again Cleopatra’s seductive voice will follow you as you spin the reels, accompanied by an interesting soundtrack in the background.
Gamers will come across authentic symbols such as the Ankh, Scarab, The Eye of Chorus and Flowers, representing high-paying symbols, while the low value symbols are represented through playing cards.
Cleopatra herself is a multiplier Wild, while several important gods form the Egyptian culture are included like Aset, Bastet and Hathor, for whom you will need to gather Followers during gameplay in other to please the ancient deities and level up the game.
The newest IGT product is a five-reel slot with 40 fixed paylines, so all you need to do is set the coin value before you start spinning the reels. The coin value goes from $1 to $100, meaning that the minimum wager you can place is $40, while the maximum is $400, which will most definitely please high rollers.
Winning combinations are made left to right starting from the leftmost reel, and you will need at least three of a kind on an active payline to start winning money.
Followers are crucial for the Level Up Plus feature, where you need to gather more and more of them in order to go from level 1 to level 8, unlocking additional features and bonus maps.
You start with the Alexandria Bonus Map in the initial level, and as you level up the game, you will unlock Nile River Valley Bonus Map, and finally the Pyramids of Giza Bonus Map that offer loads of free spins, multipliers and cash prizes.
As you go up the ladder, you will also unlock different types of Followers symbols, improved multipliers, and new deities to follow, while the prizes get bigger and bigger every step of the way.
The Followers in Cleopatra Plus are also Scatters and you need to land at least three of them to start the Bonus Game and pick one of three offered maps, depending on the level you are currently in.
Once you have chosen the map and the positions where you will place the Followers, you will be awarded with a certain number of free spins, some multipliers and possibly with an instant cash prize. Basically, your main task is to worship the selected god and keep pleasing him and you will get well rewarded in the final reckoning.
As far as we know, the Cleopatra Wild symbol will pay the most, offering 1,500 coins for five of a kind. Every god offers 400 coins for the maximum combo, and the chosen god symbol is supposed to appear in stacks while you spin the reels.
As we already mentioned, as you level up your game, you will also increase the amount of the instant cash prizes, will be awarded with higher multipliers and new and improved Scatter symbols. Basically, the more you spin the reels, the bigger the prizes get.
As you may notice, the gods of ancient Egypt may become quite generous to gamers if they manage to keep them satisfied, but they will ask big sacrifices and offerings from their followers, so if you intended to play Cleopatra Plus slot just for fun, this will not be a proper game for you, given the fact that the initial bet is $40.
Those who prove themselves worthy will be lucratively awarded for their sacrifice, since the latest IGT product offers some amazing prizes and loads of action to make your playtime more enjoyable.
